18 Fun Felt Crafts for Kids
Kids love crafting and making things with their hands. Felt is a fun material to work with because it's soft, easy to cut into shapes, inexpensive, and doesn't fray like wool or yarn. We keep a treasure trove of felt in all different colors in our craft cabinet. We've made everything from felt dinosaur heads on clothespins to snowmen. At the bottom of this post, I've included a list of the felt-related supplies that we have in our house.
But first! Check out this list of 18 fun felt crafts for kids that will inspire you to get your craft on!
These are all simple enough that a younger child can do them with a little help, and older children can complete them entirely on their own. From beautiful butterflies and felt flowers to fun pencil toppers for school, you're sure to find a felt project that your kids will love.

Felt Projects Kids Can Make
Felt Rocket Sewing Craft by Sugar, Spice & Glitter - This sewing project for older kids can easily be modified for little ones using a felt board by simply leaving out the sewing aspect and just giving them the pieces to assemble so they can create their own rockets in different combinations. Jennifer's tutorial, though, makes this sewing project fun and easy for older kids.
No-Sew Felt Butterfly by A Cultivated Nest - These felt butterflies are simple and adorable. Little children will love them. But note that an adult will have to help a little bit by precutting the shapes and working the hot glue gun for one part.
Felt Monsters by The Soccer Mom Blog - Another great tutorial. You'll need some poster board for this one. And I love that the final monsters are not scary at all.
No-Sew Unicorn Felt Pouch by She Saved - Gaack! This thing is so cute, I want to make one myself. I wish I'd seen this 10 years ago when my daughter wasn't heading off to college.
Felt Roses by Messy Little Monster - These are just lovely. What a great craft for your kids to make for Mother's Day, Valentine's Day, a birthday, or ANY occasion!
Felt Apples by Fireflies and Mud Pies - These are great for a back-to-school activity, or for the letter "A" ("M" in Spanish), or even for celebrating the fall season.
Unicorn Pen Topper by My Nourished Home - Here's another one my girl would have gone crazy for... and probably still would! These are a great way to dress up pencils and an incentive to write!
Felt Ladybug Pencil Topper by Artsy Craftsy Mom - Equally cute are these fantastic felt ladybugs. They'd be great for celebrating spring, life cycles, Valentine's day, and the letter "L" ("M" in Spanish).
Layered Felt Rainbow Magnet by Crafts by Amanda - This is a great project for practicing cutting skills. And it is very easy to put together. I'm adding it to our felt board collection.
Felt Apple Pie by The Best Ideas for Kids - Do you have a little chef? Making felt foods is a must for little children. Especially if they have a play kitchen.
Felt Pizza by Living Life and Learning - The felt pizza my 4yo has is one of his favorite "foods" in his play kitchen. Being able to add all the different toppings is crazy fun for kids.
Felt Heart Necklace by Kids' Craft Room - I made felt heart necklaces for my daughter's preschool class once. Mine were way more complicated than these, which are so easy to make, your preschooler can do it!
Four Seasons Felt Board by Crafts by Amanda - This is brilliant and on my list of crafts to add to our list here at home. What a great way to teach the seasons!
Felt Corner Bookmarks by Ideas for the Home - Here's a great craft for older kids that promotes literacy. These bookmarks will be enjoyed by boys and girls alike.
